Biography: "Mandarin was the son of one of the wealthiest men in pre-revolutionary mainland China (who claimed to be a direct descendant of Genghis Khan) and an English noblewoman. Both parents died upon their son's birth, and he was raised by his aunt, who was embittered against the world. Every bit of the money he inherited from his parents was spent teaching him science and martial arts, consequently he was broke upon reaching adulthood. Unable to pay the taxes on his family estate, the Mandarin and his aunt were rendered homeless. His aunt died almost immediately thereafter, but he felt no grief for her thanks to his harsh quasi-military upbringing.Hoping to find a means of avenging himself upon the civilization that had taxed him and rendered him homeless, the Mandarin explored the dreaded Valley of Spirits, where no one had set foot for centuries. There he found the skeleton and starship of Axonn-Karr, an intelligent dragon like alien from the planet Maklu-4, who had come to Earth centuries ago and been killed by humans. Over the following years, the Mandarin reassembled the starship's extraordinarily advanced machinery within an ancient deserted castle which he found within the Valley of Spirits, and studied the Makluan science until he had mastered it. He also learned how to use the ten rings he found within the starship. The Mandarin then subjugated the villages around the valley, and, through his science, rapidly became a power that not even the Chinese Army could successfully challenge. He next embarked on a long series of attempts to achieve world domination."

Skurge era o filho mestiço de um gigante da tempestade e de uma deusa. Ignorado pela raça de seu pai, devido ao seu tamanho relativamente pequeno, ele se tornou um grande guerreiro e matador de gigantes. Foi exatamente por essa razão ganho o nome de Executor (Executioner). Vivendo uma vida solitária por muitos anos, Skurge foi seduzido pela feiticeira Encantor para acompanhá-la em suas tentativas de conquistar tanto Asgard quanto a Terra e se tornou um dos maiores adversários do poderoso Thor.
Criado por Stan Lee e Jack Kirby, ele estreou em Journey into Mystery # 103 (abril de 1964).
O ator neozelandês Karl Urban irá interpretar o Executor no filme Thor: Ragnarok (2017). **********
Skurge was the half-blooded son of a storm giant and a goddess. Ignored by his father's race, because of its relatively small size, he became a great warrior and killer of giants. That's exactly why I got the name Executioner. Living a lonely life for many years, Skurge was seduced by the sorceress Enchantress to accompany her in her attempts to conquer both Asgard and Earth and became one of the greatest opponents of the mighty Thor.
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, he debuted in Journey into Mystery # 103 (April 1964).
New Zealand actor Karl Urban will play the Executor in the film Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
